telework


Explanation:
Hello
Apart from "telecommuting", you can simply use "telework" or "teleworking" - I've used the expressions often and, more to the point, Altavista gives more than 50,000 hits!

telework


Explanation:
Although "telecommuting" is indeed the more common term at present in the United States, I expect it will soon be replaced with "telework". One is not "commuting at a distance", one is working at a distance. Also, "telework" is shorter.

telecommuting


Explanation:
Definitely "telecommuting". Interesting thing, I've been "accused" about 12 years ago, of having "invented" the term!
